Cubs Scouts is the second section within Scouts and is suitable for boys and girls aged 7.5 to 11 years of age.
At 1st / 14th Brighton Sea Scouts, Cub Scouts meet at the Scout hall once a week on a Wednesday night between 7.00pm and 8.30pm, where the "Akela" and trained Cub leaders run activities and challenges for a Cub pack of about 50 boys and girls.
All Cub Scouts are encouraged to make friends and to 'do their best' at whatever they try and to help others to ‘do their best’ also!
Cub Scouts work in a small group known as a "Six" and have a lot of fun doing many interesting things. They spend weekends away together camping, fishing and exploring, learn about bushcraft, going to sports meetings, visiting the zoo, the museum or the fire station.
Cubs get the opportunity to learn many useful things that will help them when they move up to the older Scouting sections, as well as throughout their entire lives.
There are so many things that Cub Scouts can do. When you join Cubs you need to be ready for adventure, excitement and serious fun!
Activities Cubs might participate in include games (where Cubs can learn about team work, leadership and co-operation), outdoor adventures (such as sailing, camping, cycling, bushwalking and billy-karting), environmental activities (such as projects that care for native bushland eg. Cleanup Australia Day, tree planting) and community service (Dawn Service).
